Medical Technologist (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 18, 2017
BIDMC good hospital but compensation is lacking. There is no employee career ladder which leads to lower pay and no advancement. People here are pleasurable to work with and the vacation benefit does become a nice perk once you work here for awhile.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Boston, MA – October 7, 2017
Nursing leadership positions lack diversity. Comprised mostly of white and female individuals who are great at what they do however, does not set a good picture for talented, aspiring minority. Culture is like working with family. Professional environment. Management is fair and just. Very supportive of staff just need to provide more support or positions for career advancement.

LPN (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 19, 2017
A typical day consisted of pre-op consults & post-op follow ups, set up & assistance with minor office procedures, patient calls, prescription renewals and stocking supplies. I learned a great deal about med/surg and wound care. I had supportive coworkers and providers to work with. Working for a practice that dealt mainly with reconstruction procedures for cancer patients, I greatly enjoyed the challenges and interpersonal relationships I developed with those I helped care for. The most difficult part of the job was often having to work overtime unexpectedly to meet the needs of our clientele, but it was worth it to be sure we provided the best care possible.

Med.Asst/Administrative/Med.Record/Biller/Coder (Former Employee) – Lexington, MA – September 7, 2017
I started in the phone room, then because the phone room was AWFUL to work in for 8 hrs straight & I wanted to put my newly learned skills to the test I started wandering and hinting to my manager that I would like to try other tasks. It took a few months and I was at the front desk. Then I started offering to help with medical records to learn the in's & out's of that department. My manager offered me OT daily to make sure that was all taken care of. Then my manager transferred me over to medical billing and coding, that was fun to learn and very intense. Next was referrals and insurance authorizations. Then I officially became a MA. My only regret was that in all of the positions I was able to help with because I was trained well in every department, I was an asset yet I never received a raise from minimum wage.
